This afternoon the U.S. Senate passed a $1.7 trillion government funding bill. It now heads over to the House of Representatives for final passage. Senator Kevin Cramer, R-ND, released the following statement:
“I continue to oppose the utter dysfunction of Congress. Ramming through must-pass bills like this omnibus spending package with absolutely no transparency is disrespectful to Rank and File members and the American people we represent. While there’s some good in the bill including fully funding our military and defense needs, I refuse to facilitate this bad behavior.”— Senator Kevin Cramer, R-ND.
